TechCrunch 這篇「Trump and Clinton spent $81M on US election Facebook ads, Russian agency $46K」講到 Facebook 目前階段所判斷出來，能夠識別是俄羅斯政府投入的資金，只有 USD$46K，相較於美國兩黨投入了 USD$81M 差了 1760 倍：
While there might have been other Russian disinformation groups, the IRA spent $46,000 on pre-election day Facebook ads compared to $81 million spent by Clinton and Trump together, discluding political action committees who could have spent even more than that on the campaigns’ behalf.
而俄羅斯投入的廣告散佈率超過 1.26 億的 Facebook 使用者，以及 2000 萬 Instagram 的使用者：
Facebook today said that the Russians still reached 126 million Facebook users, as well as 20 million Instagram users.
俄羅斯這團隊的水準真不賴... 只可惜大概沒辦法寫在 resume 上。
透過 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) 取得的資料顯示美國政府 (包括了五角大廈、CIA、NSA) 如何介入好萊塢，影響大眾對於戰爭的看法：「EXCLUSIVE: Documents expose how Hollywood promotes war on behalf of the Pentagon, CIA and NSA」。
灰標「US military intelligence agencies have influenced over 1,800 movies and TV shows」可以看出影響的層面。
The documents reveal for the first time the vast scale of US government control in Hollywood, including the ability to manipulate scripts or even prevent films too critical of the Pentagon from being made — not to mention influencing some of the most popular film franchises in recent years.
Jon Voight in Transformers — in this scene, just after American troops have been attacked by a Decepticon robot, Pentagon Hollywood liaison Phil Strub inserted the line ‘Bring em home’, granting the military a protective, paternalistic quality, when in reality the DOD does quite the opposite.
